How can I find out if someone is driving on a suspended license?

Asked about 3 years ago - Crystal Lake, IL

I am going to be in Court with my ex and I know for a fact he is driving on a suspended or revoked license and with no insurance. Who can I write or call to get an official word on this?

    Answered . Insurance is a private matter - there is no public registry in Illinois of who is insured. You are required to present proof of insurance when ever you are stopped by the police.

    The status of someone's license is maintained by the Illinois Secretary of State and they maintain all records about the validity of a person's license. There are privacy laws which govern the dissemination of those records.
